Turkey Chili with Kale
Last weekend I needed to use up some kale, so I found a recipe for Turkey Chili with Kale. It was delicious and very easy to make.
Kale has always been a favorite of mine but lately I seem to want to eat it even more. I think this is because kale is becoming the new spinach in health circles. You hear people talking about kale all the time now. This makes me happy because it has been a favorite and now I can even find it at Walmart.
There are various kinds of kale and for this recipe I used a new variety to me called Lacinato (Dinosaur) Kale. It is called this because of the look of the leaves. This variety has a more nutty taste and I do not think it is as bitter as some of the other varieties.
According to Wikipedia, Kale is full of beta carotene, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, lutein, and rich in calcium. I encourage you to try adding some kale to your diet! I think you will find it addicting.
